Aloha, My Windows XP Pro crashed. I got a copy of Acronis True Image 11 Bootable CD-ROM to help backup my new installation. I reinstalled Windows XP Pro and I activated the Acronis boot manager. The next time I rebooted the computer I received the error Code: MBR ERROR 1 instead of Windows. I tried: Windows XP Recovery Console: CHKDSK /R, FIXBOOT, FIXMBR - continued to receive the error. Formated the Disk through Acronis, re-installed Windows. - Same error. Next I found the thread on (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=55317 I choose to try the flopydisk utility to re-write the MBR. Created the Floopy, booted from the Floppy, ran the utility. Next time I booted instead of the Code: MBR ERROR 1 I received Code: ACCESS ERROR! in its place. The hard drive is not bootable at this point. Suggestions?
